  • AutoTerrain - Worlds best boom stability

    The AutoTerrain works and reacts on both boom movements and twisting forces on the boom. This allows the system to be proactive and react on the cause more than on the symptom. AutoTerrain works with 5 ultrasonic sensors and three gyro sensors. Ultrasonic sensors are located at a given distance on the boom and measure the height of the crops multiple times per second. The gyro sensors measure the ...

  • How Ergonomics Directs Force

    Muscling an airplane out of a hangar and onto the runway takes a fair amount of physical effort. Exert just a little too much force while your body twists during maneuvering and you could be spending weeks at the chiropractor. ...

  • Environmental movements and social networking sites in Bangladesh

    This paper aims to explore the current trend of environmental movements and its relationship with social networking sites (SNS) in Bangladesh, the most vulnerable country to climate change impacts in the world. SNS is increasingly being used in environmental movements in the disaster–prone country and it has a significant impact on activism. This study was undertaken on a recent protest against ...

  • GPS–based slope monitoring systems and their applications in transition mining from open–pit to underground

    Combining methods of open–pit and underground mining can yield maximum economic outcomes, while they may also cause large–scaled geological hazards, such as landslides. Failure to prevent landslides in mining areas could result in losses and damages to equipment, surrounding environments, and even human lives. In this paper, we report the application of global positioning system (GPS) for ...

  • Systems of systems engineering: prospects and challenges for the emerging field

    System of systems engineering (SoSE) is a field that remains in the embryonic stages of development. The work presented in this volume provides a methodological approach, grounded in foundations of systems theory, to perform SoSE. However, further development of the field must be predicated on understanding critical distinctions emerging and bring focus to the challenges and prospects for further ...

  • The latest ground Gas monitoring innovations

    The latest Ground Gas monitoring innovations   The traditional methodology for ground gas monitoring has been ‘spot monitoring’ – taking event readings at various set times to predict the sub surface gas regime on both on Brownfield and Landfill sites.     This methodology is in general current practice under both the EU Landfill Directive ...

  • Modular robots

    Although robotics has advanced significantly in the past several decades, efforts have primarily focused on programming and software. Robotic architecture, on the other hand, has largely been limited to six degrees of freedom (DOF): three for positioning and three for orientation. As a result, says Charles Khairallah, M.Eng, robot movement is inefficient, and programming becomes highly complex ...

  • Restructuring of a civic authority responsible for environmental issues

    This research focused on the restructuring of a French local authority in charge of environmental management in a territory confronted with five major natural hazards: floods, forests fires, earthquakes, avalanches and ground movement. A recent analysis of developments in both public and private sectors has indicated the emergence of post-bureaucratic organisations. How do public organisations ...

  • Evaluating truck turn time in grounded operations using simulation

    This paper presents in detail techniques for developing simulation models of marine container terminals using Arena. It illustrates the concepts by modelling the Port of Houston's Barbours Cut Container Terminal (BCT) and subsequently discusses how the model can be used to answer one of many operational questions BCT management had ? how many yard cranes are needed to reduce truck turn time to a ...

  • Tunneling Under Austin, Protecting the Environment, and Preserving the Peace

    ABSTRACTFor over a decade, an existing 42-inch wastewater interceptor has plagued the Austin Water Utility (Utility) with higher than usual maintenance demands. Located in the Walnut Creek flow line, this interceptor is partially exposed with manholes rising several feet above the creek bed due to years of erosion. The interceptor suffers from external erosion and is victim to debris floating ...

  • Pollution of south of Tehran ground waters with heavy metals

    Abstract: The reuse of nutrients and organic matter in wastewater sludge via on agricultural lands application is a desirable goal. However, trace or heavy metals present in sludge pose the risk of human or phytotoxicity from land application. The aim of this research is possibility of ground water pollution of south of Tehran because of ten years irrigation with Ni, Cd and Pb borne waste water. ...

  • Health, Safety and Environmental Risks of Underground Co2 Storage – Overview of Mechanisms and Current

    CO2 capture and storage (CCS) in geological reservoirs may be part of a strategy to reduce global anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Insight in the risks associated with underground CO2 storage is needed to ensure that it can be applied as safe and effective greenhouse mitigation option. This paper aims to give an overview of the current (gaps in) knowledge of risks associated with underground CO2 ...

  • Autocatalyst demand contributes to PGM price shift

    Autocatalysts are major users of platinum group metals (pgm). Tom Kendall, editor of Johnson Matthey’s Platinum Review, looks at the fundamentals of the pgm markets, and reviews the reasons behind the dramatic price movements of ...

  • What happened on "The Beach"? Social movements and governance of tourism in Thailand

    Debates about ecotourism are futile without an understanding of how concepts of ecologically acceptable and unacceptable forms of tourism are developed. This paper assesses the case of public opposition to the filming of the Hollywood film, The Beach, in Thailand on grounds that it caused environmental degradation. Evidence suggests that campaigners overstated the film's environmental impact in ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Nonhalogenated VOC`s

    An important consideration when evaluating a remedy is whether the compound is nonhalogenated or halogenated. A nonhalogenated compound is one which does not have a halogen (e.g., fluorine, chlorine, bromine, or iodine) attached to it. The vendor of the technology being evaluated must be informed whether the compounds to be treated are nonhalogenated or halogenated. In most instances, the vendor ...

  • Development of a Combination Inclinometer-Deflectometer and ADAAS

    A newly developed transverse deformation gage, called the combination inclinometer-deflectometer, and special features of its automated data acquisition and analysis system (ADAAS) are described. The hybrid, two-in-one instrument and the ADAAS contribute to the enhancement of accuracy, reliability, and precision of ground movement ...
